I Declare War, They Come In Swarms, Left Alive

(Viaduct Venue) I Declare War recently recorded a hilarious collection called “Bring the Season,” featuring death-metal takes on seasonal standards. The Seattle-based band’s version of “Jingle Bell Rock” remains musically faithful to the 1950s original, with the exception of the monstrous vocals. “Carol of the Bells” combines a harmonic dual-guitar interpretation of the melody (reminiscent of Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Christmas Eve”) with a demonic “ding, dong” intonation and samples from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (“when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse”). This is the group’s closest concert date to the holiday, making it the perfect gig for people who’ve always wanted to hear joyous Christmas carols filtered through a guttural growl. ANDREW MILLER
